    try craigslist, only do local though IMHO. Too risky not being able to pick it up and see it. Ebay, but its going to be expensive.

    Walk into an Apple or AT&T store sign up for a new contract then cancel and pay the fee...

    No like without signing up at all.

    Is there a place online that is just selling them?

    If so post where

    In Belgium and Italy you get the 3Gs WITHOUT any contract.
    You could plan a holiday trip there

    Sign up for a 2 year contract, keep the contract for 30 days, cancel and pay the ETF.

    It will end up costing close to the same as when you go to buy one outright from a 3rd party.

    I think the bottom line is there is no answer in the form you are looking for. Craigslist, ebay, or sign up and then cancel. Those are your choices (aside from going oversees and buying it there)

    If there were stores (online or not) that could just sell them outright....then you would be able to just walk into the Apple store and buy them outright.
